Virat Kohli not being here is definitely a big miss: Shubman Gill

Shubman Gill, the talented Indian cricketer, has expressed confidence in India’s prospects despite missing key players like Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah in the ongoing series against England. India currently leads the series 2-1, with young players stepping up in the absence of senior players.

Gill acknowledged the absence of players like Kohli and Bumrah, stating, “If a player in the class of Boom bhai is not playing, any team will miss him, especially since he leads our fast-bowling attack.” However, he highlighted the impressive performances of young players like Mohammed Siraj, who took four wickets in the last match, as a sign of the team’s depth.

Regarding the absence of Kohli, Gill noted, “The young players have got the opportunity because Virat bhai or Bumrah bhai are not there. So, those youngsters also know that this opportunity might not remain with them for long, so they are trying to give their best in every opportunity.”

“Virat Kohli not being here is definitely a big miss. For whatever team he plays, it’s a big thing to not have a player like him”, he asked.

Gill also addressed the perception of young players lacking humility, citing examples like Yashasvi Jaiswal‘s back-to-back double centuries as evidence of their talent and dedication. He emphasized that modern young players are indeed humble and committed to making the most of their opportunities.

On a personal note, Gill discussed his own performance in the series, including his recent century and 91-run innings. Despite facing disappointment in his Test career, Gill remains focused on contributing to the team and maintaining a positive mindset.

When asked about his transition to batting at No. 3 after initially opening for India, Gill stated that while there haven’t been many technical changes, there is a difference in approach between opening and batting in the middle order. He emphasized the importance of playing the situation and adapting to different roles in the team.

“I have batted at no.3/no.4 for the A side and also in domestic cricket. So it’s not something that I haven’t done in my life. Not a lot of technical changes that I have done to my game, but yes there is a difference opening and batting at 3. It’s different when you are opening the innings, as there is not time to think much. It’s you who are setting the tone while if you are batting in the middle order or top order at 3/4, you have to play the situation,” Gill added.
